Dentist | Prosthodontics Questions Dentures

Do I need a prosthodontic follow up after getting my dentures?

My doctor said that I need to have a follow up after getting my dentures. What will he look for other than fit and maintenance? Is there anything I should expect from this follow-up?

Yes, tissue irritation, occlusion in centric and lateral excursions, as well how well are you maintaining your home care.
FOLLOW-UP is important after a full denture as areas of pressure could cause irritation. The occlusion should be re-balanced after your denture is in place for at least 3-6 days.
